For Wladimir Klitschko and Alexander Povetkin, as well as many boxing fans, October 10, 2013 will be a date to remember.
For both fighters this match will be one of their most significant ones, as not only is the championship on the line, but this kind of promotion is simply put, colossal. While most champions always train hard for their fights, there are those moments when they take their training just a bit further.
Heavyweight fighter Sam Sexton (18-3-0) is proof of that. Sexton happened to be picked as a sparring partner for Wladimir Klitschko in preparation for his mega-bout against Povetkin.
Outcome? Wladimir Klitschko broke Sexton’s nose and left multiple hematomas under his eyes despite the fact that Sam was wearing headgear. This dictates that Wladimir’s power is too much for the padding on the protective wear, and the impact of the punch forced the padding to create tissue and vessel damage on the wearer’s face.
Apparently, this had prevented Sexton from making it to his best friend’s wedding. Sam did not feel comfortable attending the wedding with the way he looked, thus had decided to skip it altogether.
Knowing this, Wladimir sent a video of his apology and the explanation of why Sexton could not attend. He also congratulated to the couple, wishing them a happy marriage!
